Choose from an early morning or late afternoon departure
Select a morning or afternoon departure when you book, and after hotel pickup in Dubai, travel to the equestrian center. Along the way, listen as your guide shares interesting facts about the desert, its landscapes, and indigenous wildlife. On arrival at the center, be introduced to your horse. Be matched with a horse that fits your needs and level of experience. Listen to a safety briefing, and get riding instructions from the professional instructor who will lead your ride. Then, settle into the saddle and set off on your ride, following your instructor into the desert wilds. Along the way, relax and soak up the silent beauty of the desert in the atmospheric morning or late afternoon light. Walk, trot, or canter across the sands depending on your abilities, and make your way through the rolling dunes and across the sands as you gaze out over the seemingly never-ending, empty expanses. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife as you ride: with luck, you might spot a desert fox or some of the gazelle that roam free here. When the time comes, make your way back to the equestrian center. Then, bid goodbye to your horse and instructor, and finish your riding experience with a drop-off back at your Dubai hotel.

My partner had a good horse to suit his riding ability. Perhaps a stronger horse.
I enjoyed going out into the desert but feel that my horse did not have the energy or spring that I would expect for an experienced rider.
Hopefully next time there will be the chestnut horse for me that was full of energy and spring.
